america should wake up and care about what's going on today. >> well, i think we should care about what's going on today because anything that reduces the level of international tension or the threat of rogue nuclear weapons in the hands of whomever is a good day for people who enjoy living the lives we lead and the way we lead them. >> yeah. of course, the big concern when you talk about nuclear weapons today, as opposed to -- you know, when you were a teenager in 1947, from -- obviously, we had inspector of nuclear wars from 1940s through christmas day 1991 when soviet union collapsed but you just said it, big concern is nuclear weapons getting in the hands of rogue nations. >> that's an interesting point you just raised. because there are so many people in this country, specifically, i'd say over the age of 50 or 55 years of age, who have had their entire lives framed by the cold war and the threat of nuclear weapons from growing up in grammar school, getting positioned under the desk when they had the civil defense exercises to today when, you know, we have so much opportunity and s

. this was the most significant news of the weekend. the secretary of defense saying the united states of america does not have a long-range plan for dealing with iran. and the second i read that, i didn't think, oh, my gosh, the obama administration has fouled this up. i thought, oh, my gosh, the united states of america has not over the past decade between two administrations figured out how to deal with this very troublesome regime. jon meacham, five years ago, the wall street journal, five years ago, "the wall street journal" was writing blistering editorials attacking the bush administration for allowing iran, and we talked about it repeatedly, step over one line in the sand after another line in the sand. gates was talking about, of course, where they are right now, but he was talking as well, i think, about how the bush administration was unable to contain iran's nuclear ambitions. >> both those points are really important because the cold war -- the post-cold war proliferation story is like the cold war in that it doesn't pay a whole hell of a lot of attention to inauguration dates. gates serv

troubling. >> well, they're generally troubling, mika, because the united states of america, after nine years in afghanistan, after two commanders in chief, still have no exit strategy. now, of course, the things we were supposed to have learned from vietnam and the beirut tragedy was you never go into war until you have an exit strategy. the only semblance of an exit strategy, mort zuckerman, that we have is that we will stay there, and young americans will continue to die. and american taxpayers will continue to spend billions and billions of dollars a year. so we can prop up the government of hamid karzai. hamid karzai. that -- this man, who is contemplating joining the taliban -- which, by the way, i say let him do it. they've got a 10% approval rating anyway in afghanistan. he is our exit strategy. so if you're a mother or a father or a wife or a husband whose loved one is in afghanistan right now going out on patrol with the possibility of being injured for life or killed, you're doing it for a man who says he's thinking about joining the taliban. >> well, i don't think i would de
